Marquise Pattern (Finally!) and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  Well, the past couple of weeks have been all about finishing up quilt patterns, and I'm delighted to let you know that my Marquise pattern is finally available in my Craftsy and Etsy shops.  The inspiration for this pattern was a Marquise cut diamond, and I love the jewel shapes created in both the main design, as well as the negative space.

I finished this quilt way back in March, but since I was madly working on my book at the time, I wasn't able to commit myself to more writing just then.  This quilt has a great curvy illusion, but has all straight piecing, as well as no Y-seams or partial seams.  Give it a try!

There were so many gorgeous projects linked up last week, like this king sized beauty by Myra at Busy Hands Quilts-

Sue at Sevenoaks Street Quilts linked up this adorable little mini.  Aren't those snails just the cutest?

And if you're a free motion quilting junkie, I've got just the girl for you.  Esther at I Patch and Quilt  has SO many amazing designs (this post alone has seven different ones)!

Okay, y'all.  Time to party!

1. You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)
